12 Tags of 2013- August

It's not a TAG, I know:)  I decided on a wall hanging for my Media Room.  But sometimes things don't turn out how we hoped.  It may not be a Tag however, I did use the same techniques and some of the same supplies.  No photo tutorial this month.  I had August Tag to get done and my daughter turns 17 next week...WOW!  So this week I am one busy Mommy!
 
 
Nope no tag but manila folders cut with the Postage Frame die works pretty awesome;) I did use Distress Stains but some different colours since I don't have the same colours Tim used.  Using the Walnut Stain and Antique Brass it warms it up a little.

OMG, I love this old Balloon and without having the ship stamp it's a perfect replacement.  Using the same colours with the Distress Paints I applied it to the metal #'s 4 1/2 and glued it on. 
 
I didn't have time to hunt out the Mask that was used.  Instead I used acetate.  With the same technique I stamped, dried, cut and glued with Glossy Accents.  I found smearing a light coat of glue with my finger worked well.
 
I piece of thick twine knotted at the ends is all it takes to hang it up...in my Craft Room!
 
 
It's not where I wanted it to go but in the end it works:)  And I like it over my Sponge Blocks:)

I made this frame a few weeks ago...well not the frame, I bought that.  But I did make all the stuff that goes in the frame.  I used the Jalopy die, rubs and various goodies to personalize our FAMILY frame above our mantle in the Media Room.  You can see how I wanted the August "Wall Hanging" near it...oh well.
 
Thanks for popping in to see.  I can't believe September Tag is next!  Are you making the 12 Tags?  If you are, leave me a comment with your link so I can see.  Hopefully while I'm bumping around Vancouver Island seeing family I will hit WIFI now and then.  Mmmm... like STARBUCKS!
 
Have a great August:)

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
